Tee, blazer, nice denim, fresh sneaks. Male or female.

During the summer I wear a pencil skirt with a blouse or a simple shift dress and bring a blazer to put on when I enter the building. I wear heels because it makes me feel more confident, but that’s just me. If you’re a male, my boyfriend usually wears simple slacks with a button down shirt and a blazer and nice dress shoes. Really, that’s just what makes us feel awesome and professional, so if you put on an outfit and feel great, then make it your own interview outfit and WORK IT. Good luck!!

Got industry offer for Director level role in strategy / Corp dev M&A at a late stage pre-IPO unicorn (Series D+) at a MCOL city. 200 base, 20% bonus, additional 40k/yr options. So $280K range all in starting. I’m currently making $250K in VC here in Bay Area. Job is in a MCOL T2 city (Boston/Dallas/Austin/Chicago) so I won’t be living in expensive Bay Area.

I’m a tech consultant working in the SAP practice. I’m a second year associate. I have decided that I don’t like the culture of consulting - work more hours, always add more work and responsibility to your plate, etc. I would like to work a job that is more 9-5 that doesn’t expect you to work in so many different things at once. What industry roles should I be applying to? Is leaving after 1.5 years too soon?

As I see it, my greatest obstacle will be getting an interview given my lack of a prestigious education/good upbringing. Grateful for any insights on how I can maximise my chances/if I have a chance at all.

If you apply to an audit client, how restrictive is it? Would you need to let your company know, even if you are just applying? I am in consulting so I have never been on an audit engagement. I hear if you do exit, you will have additional paperwork to fill but for the most part, is it easy/not a big deal?

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
